Biography

Pat Perry is an American visual artist primarily painting, drawing, photographing, and installing large-scale outdoor mural installations. During the 2010's Perry's series of sketchbooks and photos documenting his travels within the United States, became some of the artist's most well-known work. The artist's large-scale murals and posters have called attention to a variety of social causes through collaborations with groups such as the Beehive Design Collective, AptArts, No More Deaths, and the UN High Commissoner For Refugees. 

 

Perry’s ongoing series of Recital works use a fictional group of performers to animate social and emotional effects of 21st century technologies, as well as knowledge limits of individual meaning-making. The works include paintings, drawings, and installations of life-size performers on interstate medians and roadsides throughout the Midwest. Pat works and lives in a small downtown neighborhood on Detroit’s East Side.
